Hi guys,
Here are some photos that I found in my inbox recently Wink





































And some other from a well known UK Heavy Crane Hire company Whistle











Whilst my name is on the pictures, it is not me that has taken them. The author asked not to be mentioned when posting these pictures but I am sure some of you can guess who it is!

Thanks for looking,

Paul R

By any chance would the group of Weldex pics be of the World Cup stadium?

Nice crane photos by the way.

Hey I'm basically in a cave over here. Unless I purchase a TV 'soccer' package or subscribe to newspapers of other nations, it's hard to know much of anything of what's going on outside of the US, just by digesting the run-o-the-mill news.....to which I'm not much of a 'newsie' anyway.....just a caveman.

Also, ultimately, I wasn't sure if trucks from the UK would actually make trips to such far away places as South Africa, even if the crane does.......Just some good guessing and internet 'eyeball work' I suppose.

Thanks Chris

Anyone know where the LR1600 Weldex crane is no? I came past weldex's alfreton depot earlier and there is some massive jib pieces stacked at the bottom of the yard!
